Delivering new opportunities, sustainable advantages.

Artex provides businesses with the ability to capture underwriting profits with specific captive solutions and structures we have developed. This includes creating structures for law firms to provide clients with After The Event Legal Expenses (ATE) insurance products and participate in underwriting profits. We also offer insurance intermediaries, brokers, MGAs and others who have developed profitable accounts of business the ability to grow their revenue and gain greater influence and control over their underwriting capacity with the establishment of a Producer Owned Reinsurance Company or Cell (PORC). In addition, we offer an alternative approach for both property owners and managing agents to generate revenue stream from the management of insurance placed on behalf of tenants. 

After The Event Legal Expenses

ATE is a well-established product with applications in both the personal injury and commercial litigation markets. ATE coverage protects an attorney’s client (typically a claimant) when or after that person or entity becomes aware of the need to litigate to protect their interests. ATE covers the client against what could prove to be substantial costs if legal action were to prove unsuccessful. Artex specializes in the creation of insurance structures, which enable law firms to provide their clients with highly competitive, flexibly priced ATE insurance products. The law firms also have the opportunity to participate in the underwriting results of their insurance portfolio through the use of a Protected Cell Company (PCC) as the reinsurance vehicle. Our expertise in this sector includes the ability to work with market leading insurers via existing schemes, which have been carefully constructed to ensure total compliance with all necessary regulations. In addition, we have access to a number of PCC facilities with low start-up and capital costs.

Producer Owned Reinsurance Company or Cell

With the establishment of a Producer Owned Reinsurance Company or Cell, we can provide insurance intermediaries, brokers, MGAs and others the ability to underwrite on a reinsurance basis a portion of the insurance products. This allows insurance producers to share in their underwriting risk of profitable accounts they have written, and capture profits lost to the commercial market. The right fit for this approach includes all classes of insurance business, particularly short tail lines with low claims volatility.

Property Owners & Managing Agents

Artex has also developed an innovative captive solution to help property owners and managing agents in the real industry to produce revenue from insurance arrangements. A PCC structure allows them to share in the underwriting of the property portfolio and receive the profits being generated from blocks of insurance policies. By using a captive program to carefully share in the underwriting of the portfolio it is possible to produce ethical and sustainable income. A captive solution can also play an important role in helping to smooth the impact of rate fluctuations in the commercial insurance market, delivering continuity of premiums.

With all our solutions, we offer the following services: initial assessment, feasibility study, license application and ongoing captive management.

Property Owners

For both Property Owners and Managing Agents commission income derived from the management of insurance placed on behalf of tenants can be an important revenue stream. In Europe, many organizations are making strategic decisions to move away from risk free income, such as commission payments, in response to commission disclosure proposals including the OFT and CMA studies and the release of ARMA-Q. As a result of this there is an increasing demand to create innovative structures that allow revenues to continue being generated from block insurance policies in response to reduced or nil levels of commission. By using a captive program to carefully share in the underwriting of the portfolio it is possible to produce ethical and sustainable income. A captive solution can also play an important role in helping to smooth the impact of rate fluctuations in the commercial insurance market, delivering continuity of premiums.

Apartment Owners

Apartment owners often require tenants to carry renter’s insurance, but the process of verifying coverage, subrogating losses and tracking certificates can be a nightmare for property managers and can leave the property owner at risk when the renter’s insurance does not respond effectively to a loss.
 
In North America, Artex has developed a unique captive insurance solution for owners of multi-family housing properties.  This solution not only provides the process and technology to effectively implement a renter’s liability program, but also provides a structure that provides the property owner with a tenant-funded mechanism to fund for potential losses and may result in an additional revenue stream to the property owners.
